"I read a bit of Restoration poetry and listen to Leadbelly, and it comes out like that" (Bid, The Monochrome Set)

The casual prose of pop history is full of backhanded compliments, and The Monochrome Set have received a few, ranging from "should have been massive" to "influential", numbering the likes of Morrissey and Marr, Blurs Graham Coxon and Franz Ferdinands Alex Kapranos among their celebrity admirers.


Released in February 1980, their first album Strange Boutique, featuring the bands percussion-heavy theme song (predating Adam & The Antss "Kings of the Wild Frontier" by months) and the Johnny Marr-anticipating "Love Goes Down The Drain", caught the Monochrome Set in full flight, quickly followed by the equally taut, funny and adventurously dynamic Love Zombies.
